Priyesh Vijayan

Student Ph.D., McGill University

I’m a second-year Ph.D. scholar at McGill University and Mila – Quebec AI Institute, where I’m supervised by Doina Precup and William L. Hamilton.

My research interests lie in the broad areas of Reinforcement Learning, Complex Networks, and Deep Learning especially at their intersection, where I focus on relational representation and reasoning tasks under the Reinforcement Learning setup.

Prior to my Ph.D., I completed my M.S by Research (Thesis) at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT M) under the guidance of Balaraman Ravindran. I have 5 years of experience as a research staff working at IIT Madras, where I was associated with the Robert Bosch Centre for Data Sciences and AI (RBCDSAI) and RISE Interactive Intelligence Lab.
